Obama’s Guantanamo Plan Could Affect Kansas

KSAL StaffNovember 7, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say the Pentagon’s plan outlining the long-stalled effort to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center, expected next week, includes details suggesting that the Centennial Correctional Facility in Colorado is one suitable site to send detainees whom officials believe should never be released.

The plan represents a last-gasp effort by the Obama administration to convince Congress that detainees who can’t be transferred safely to other countries should be housed in a U.S.-based prison.

Administration officials say the plan makes no recommendations on which U.S. site is preferred and provides no rankings. But it lists the seven prison sites in Colorado, South Carolina and Kansas visited by officials and includes advantages and disadvantages.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they aren’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
